? what do you expect from president obama tomorrow in terms of a balance between things he can do himself and things he would need congress to do? >> well, he is going to do as much as he can to enforce existing law and do things through executive orders. no, the gun owners don't have to fear he is not going to take guns away through executive orders. it's that fear, that paranoia being spread by the nra and others. but he is going to take executive action. but i think he is going to propose a very robust plan from everything i hear, including an assault weapons ban. that seems to be the measure that has the most difficulty. one of the things i think they're going to propose, by the way, is to make it a lot easier to collect data on gun violence, on people who die in violence. the nra has blocked even the collection of data. so we can't know what is going on. so we can't come up with the right solutions. i hope that is part of his package, and i think it will be. >> e.j. dionne of the "washington post" and the brookings institution. thank you. it's always great to see you. >> it's great t
. >>> and now here's your first look at this morning's dish of "scrambled politics." during his first term, president obama held fewer news conferences than george w. bush or bill clinton. over four years the president held 79 such briefings, that is ten fewer than mr. bush and 54 fewer than president clinton. >>> starting this weekend, president obama's limousine will carry license plates with the phrase taxation without representation. it's a protest over the district of colombia not having voting representatives in congress. president clinton used the plates but george w. bush chose to use a different design without the protest phrase. >>> white house is changing the signature threshold from 25,000 to 100,000 for official responses to petitions on the website. not a bad move. it comes after a request that government build a star wars like death star that got enough signatures for an official white house response. >>> and in utah, george burnett, a pro oil activist and small business owner known as the i love drilling guy is using his new smoothy shop to take a stand against liberal spen
obama's children, but more on the broader point of protecting children across the country. in terms of what we expect president obama to propose today, these are going to be some of the most sweeping proposals since 1968. a couple of them will include universal background checks, calling for a reinstatement of the assault weapons ban, aggressive prosecution of the existing laws as well as limiting high capacity magazines. they are also going to include a number of executive orders which we expect will call for increasing access to things like mental health and improving security around schools. some of these, thomas, will likely get through congress with the legislative proposals. others will clearly be more difficult like the call to reinstate the assault weapons ban. that is an incredibly divisive one that even some democratic senators have said it is hard to see that they will get through both chambers. so again, president obama expected to speak shortly. we will be here following it for you, thomas. >> nbc's kristen welker at the white house, thanks so much. as kristen said, we

in kentucky. now, i'm not -- the obama administration didn't propose that, but in terms of interpretation of the u.s. constitution, under our system of law we allow courts to do that. not local sheriffs. so if the courts uphold orders handed down, whether they're executive orders or congressional laws, then the sheriff would have an obligation to obey the constitution. now, i just wanted to add one other thing. under our federalism system, local sheriffs, local police officers, will not be enforcing these federal regulations. these are going to be federal laws. the fbi will enforce them. treasury agents will enforce them. it won't be the local police who will be out making sure that new federal gun regulations are enforced. that would be a federal law and under our system only federal law enforcement authorities would have the ability to enforce. >> and, paul, if you had people like the sheriffs out of kentucky, oregon, or some of these governors talking about how they're not going to follow necessarily the federal law. it would be the justice department that would step in and have to enf
monday. the second term begins. my how times change. here's my take, four years ago, obama stood before america and spoke eloquently of his hopes for the future. he proclaimed unity of purpose over conflict and discord. his words, his words indeed. fast forward, two days ago, president obama engaged in extreme conflict and discord when he directly attacked his political opponents. the republicans he said were suspicious about whether the government should make sure kids in poverty get enough to eat. the republicans. his words. clearly the tone has changed. and then we have the economic backdrop to the inauguration. four years ago it was desperate times. but the president offered hope that we would spend a ton of money and recover quickly. fast forward, we've spent the money. we have not recovered. the economy has been in the doldrums for four long years and our debt is truly out of control. that's why there is no euphoria this time around. the thrill is gone. and the hope really did not pan out. instead, we have national anxiety. we look more and more like europe. we're deeper and deepe
